Roadtrippin' - Alice Springs to Apollo Bay

Thursday, January 5, 2012



This year we drove down to Apollo Bay for Christmas with Nick's family, stopping in Adelaide for a few days to have first Christmas with my family. It's fun to have two Christmases!



The drive from Alice Springs to Apollo Bay covers 2310km and takes two days. In the past we'd flown, but this time we needed to pick up some of our stuff we had stored at Nick's family beach house. So we borrowed a ute and drove. While there's no denying that it's quite a drive, it is interesting watching the landscape change as you move across the country. From hills in the Territory to scrubland in South Australia to farmland in Victoria. If you get a chance to drive you should do it.
